    Anyone get the black ops case from Element? I just got mine in the mail yesterday. It's a pretty cool case, and really protective. It's also my first Element case. Seems they are pretty solid. If you do have it, or have had them before. What are you thoughts? I am still working on mine.

    Is the pocket clip removable? I'm interested in this case but don't need that pocket clip.

    Yeah they are rather bulking, but the materials are some of the best I have seen in a case. They are beautiful cases.

    The one thing I can't figure out, is the carry case thing it came with. I have no idea how you are suppose to put the phone in it. It has the strings tied, but I am afraid to untie them if that not what I am suppose to do. It looks really good though.

    Yep it's completely removable. I did not want it either, so that was the first thing I did. It can be put at the top or bottom, or taken off completely.

    Alright here are some pics. I am at work and my iPhone is the only good camera I have, so I am sorry these imagines look like junk. I took them with my work surface pro.

    The last phone is of the case that I can't really figure if I am sure to untie or not.

    Also all photos are without the belt hook being on. I do not use it at all. Let me know if you want more pictures.

    That thing looks beastly. Really nice! Im sure it will protect your phone really well and actually look good doing it. I don't suppose there is an opening in the top of the case. I see the straps snap at the bottom. Its woven like molly webbing on tactical vests.

    after studding the pics and the online pics from the element website I cant figure out how that case works either. Maybe somone will chime in but I have a feeling very few actually own this case right now.

    Yeah I am loving it. It a beast of a case, but it's awesome! Already had 4 people complement it, and I got it yesterday afternoon.

    As for the holster, yeah I don't understand. It would make sense if those snap on straps covered the top, but they don't. It's those nylon strings that are tied. I wrote on facebook asking so we will see.

    Are you talking about the woven glass material on the back? It's raised on mine, and I believe it's suppose to be.

    I have not tried to remove them since I got the case, so I am not sure. I kind of hope they are hard because then it means if it drops, they want pop off and break.

    Have you used the holster that it comes with? I can't figure out how you are suppose to use it with your phone.

    Nice, is the interior that touches the back of the phone a soft rubber/silicone or a harder material?

    Is it worth a deuce?

    Can't remember about the inside, but it's a really nice case. The nice metals and plastics are great quality. I don't know about $200, but it one of the best cases I have ever used.

    I think the all black with red buttons are the best looking. I think it looks amazing.

    So I just emailed Element, and they said pull the strings to one side and slide the case in. Will try it out later.

    Interested in this case just a few questions before I pull the trigger. How does it hold up to scratches and scuffs on the metal parts or plastic??

    Do you find the crown ends easy to come loose over time if you take the case on and off ? That part has me iffy. I feel like since it just snaps in that can come loose? Can someone reassure me please.

    Someone needs to make a review video!

    Thanks
